It's not going to end without your help! As yet more soldiers from our area are deployed from Rock County this week (http://www.gazettextra.com/news/2008/sep/09/area-soldiers-called-active-duty/) please join the weekly peace vigil each Tuesday, 4:00-4:30p.m., on S.

All our best wishes and good luck to our young SnB newly-wed knitters, Steve and Nicole, as he begins his career with the Marines and she starts college classes.
